90 points, two-thirds of 1%. when you look at today's sector leaders, it's energy, financials, health care. all posting sharp gains at this hour. of course, the energy and materials sector were really the pressured sectors going quarter. bill? >> combination of risk on/risk off seconders that are doing well today. no clear direction from that standpoint. we're wondering whether today's market action is a sign of what's to come for the quarter. you saw the statistic earlier that said on average when you have a positive first day of the fourth quarter the dow is up 4% for the quarter. so what's to come this quarter? deborah of "the street" says she feels the market is destined to go higher and points out $22 billion came flooding out of equity mutual funds in the month of august, alone. show she feels that money is going to come flowing back for the investors who feel they missed out on the action, marie w ya. >> is deborah right? could we have this market meltup continue? cnbc contributor abigail doolittle suggests taking money off the table in the face of these gains. deborah, let me

. >> thank you so much, rick. let's check out the latest moves in energy and metals. sharon at the nymex. >> the momentum here definitely in the metals market. i'm standing in the gold pit. gold prices went above $1,794 an ounce. a lot of investors may have looked at the s&p 500's returns, that's decent. but gold up over 10% in the last quarter. silver up over 25% in the last quarter. they want some more of that in the fourth quarter. and we're looking at that here in the metals market. also looking at momentum taking over, the weak sentimental data out of china in terms of the oil price. the oil prices here are a little bit of a bid for oil. the fact that they lowered a mix a little while ago before the open on the weak data out of china on their manufacturing numbers. in terms of the biggest mover here in the commodities space, definitely it is natural gas. natural gas at a ten-month high. natural gas here above 3.40. some are saying that $3 gas is sustainable here even if we don't see the same focus on coal to gas switching. still going to see higher natural gas prices. back to you. >
